Patent application hints that Microsoft's folding phone could have three screens

Motorola foldable phone patent

The phone would likely have a versatile build making it possible to be used in the phone configuration, the completely unfolded tablet configuration, and a third configuration where the phone screen could be propped up nearly like it had a kickstand that would make it flawless for watching video hands-free. As a matter of fact, the company's patent reveals that its upcoming foldable handset can turn into a tablet.

What's not as common are devices with three displays, but a new Microsoft patent shows off the possibility, and the display is not in what might be considered a typical position as it's located on the device's hinge. It was approved earlier in March of this year and what you're seeing in the images are similar to the prototype before.

It looks foldable devices could be the next trend in the smartphone industry. While a report states that Microsoft may be planning to introduce maintenance for Win32 applications for the foldable smartphones. The smartphone will function as a normal phone when folded and when the owner unfolds it, the device will function as a full-fledged tablet.

Motorola is joining the race of foldable smartphones. The patents suggested that while Microsoft has been out of the smartphone game for a long time, the Redmond-based tech giant is preparing something special for the device it will utilize to re-enter the smartphone market. There's a main camera at the top and a speaker at the bottom.
